B&B Poultry Co., a privately held poultry processing facility serving the United States and international markets, has named Josh Fisher as the third president in the company’s 72-year history.

B&B’s current president and Josh’s father, Mark Fisher, has taken the role of CEO and chairman of the board and will remain active in the business. Mark has served as the company’s president for 20 years, having succeeded his father in 1998.

B&B Poultry was founded in 1945 by Mark’s parents, Ben and Dorothy (Bobbie) Fisher.

Reflecting on the transition, Mark Fisher said: “It was important to have committed to intentional conversations and be proactive in our planning to ensure a smooth transition to the next generation of leadership. I wanted to see the business fully transition to Josh’s leadership while I was still actively involved in the business. It’s a proud moment to experience. I’m proud to be Josh’s father and business partner.”

As B&B Poultry transitions to the next generation of leadership, Josh explained: “I am committed to maintaining the core values and principles that our founders, my grandparents, Ben and Dorothy Fisher, established when they founded the business. In particular, we at B&B Poultry take pride in our many long-term employees who have made B&B Poultry their life’s employment. The company and I are committed to fostering hard earned relationships with our employees, suppliers, customers and community partners.”

B&B Poultry is located in Norma, New Jersey. The company, according to its website, specializes in ready-to-cook fowl, cut-up and deboned fowl, heavy fowl, cut-up young chicken, as well as organically grown and processed poultry.
